This issue arises because the server seems to be sending the data in
plaintext normally, but uses Content-Encoding: gzip when the request
contains a parameter. Since wget does not currently support gzip
compression, this data looks like a bunch of gibberish.

The issue with IRI support is because your version of Wget was not compiled
with IRI support. You could just as easily recompile it with IRI's, but it
wouldn't help, since this is not a locale issue.
